a rough business

phoAs hard as the music business is, I’ve seen with my own eyes that there is one business that is harder: the restaurant business.  My gf’s parents had the grand opening of their San Gabriel restaurant last year just as the world economy began to tank.  From that point on it was struggle after struggle, financially, emotionally, and spiritually.  There was a glimmer of hope when they converted the menu from a Hong Kong Cafe style  to one centered around Vietnamese Pho.  It immediately became the premiere and only place in LA to find authentic Northern-style Pho.  Unfortunately, even that modest success couldn’t prop up the business enough to survive.

This weekend will be the last days you’ll be able to try the most delicious Pho (in my and many of my friend’s opinions) in the LA area.  The restaurant closes on Monday.  Goodbye Pho Bac.
